Wrinkles are an inevitable part of ageing and can be accelerated by exposure to the sun, excessive stress, diet, and weight loss. These wrinkles can be ‘static’, caused by the gradual loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, or ‘dynamic’, caused by repeated facial muscle movements. However, we can offer non-surgical facial treatments to help eliminate these lines and plump up areas of lost elasticity.
Anti wrinkle treatments
How does it work?
Botulinum type A toxin is a purified protein used to temporarily reduce the contraction of muscles, which cause the overlying skin to wrinkle.
What does the treatment involve?
Anti-wrinkle injections are carried out using a fine needle targeting specific muscles with minimal discomfort.
How long will treatment last?
Anti-wrinkles injections typically last 3-4 months. As the effects wear off muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles reappear and require re-treatment.
Isn’t anti-wrinkle treatment for older people?
Not necessarily! It’s actually better to start having anti-wrinkle injections in your 20s to prevent the lines and wrinkles from ever forming at rest! Prevention is always
better than cure!
Underarm Sweating treatment
Do you suffer from excessive underarm sweating, despite wearing anti-perspirant? The same toxin used for anti wrinkle injections can be carefully placed into the underarm area to eliminate sweating for 6-12 months.
Dermal Fillers & Lip Enhancements
As we age, our skin naturally loses its plump appearance as collagen production starts to decline. Dermal fillers restore that lost volume, giving the complexion a renewed, youthful appearance.
How do they work?
Dermal fillers contain Hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body. It has a plumping effect, meaning the skin will be smoother and also more hydrated.
Dermal fillers are injected into the areas of deficiency to replace not only the lost volume, but also to stimulate the production of further collagen to improve the quality of your skin over time.
The procedure requires an intimate knowledge of facial anatomy and location of blood vessels but also an artistic hand to create a beautiful natural shape.
Which areas can be treated?
Dermal fillers can create subtle changes, which make a huge difference – sculpting the cheeks, filling out the deep lines between the nose and mouth, adding volume and definition to the lips, reducing bumps on the nose, defining the jaw line or placing it underneath the eyes in the ‘tear troughs’ to refresh and rejuvenate tired eyes.
